Tonight, get ready for a remarkable radio experience as we transport you back three decades to September 1993. It was a moment that changed television forever, introducing us to a show that pushed the boundaries of reality and took us on a journey of mystery, belief, and the unknown. As fate would have it, we're airing this interview exactly thirty years from the very genesis of the series.

Joining us is the brilliant mind behind the exploration of this iconic show, Dr. Bethan Jones, author of "The Truth is Still Out There: Thirty Years of The X-Files." Through her scholarly lens, she takes us deep into the world of "The X-Files," a realm where the line between fact and fiction blurs, and conspiracy looms around every corner.

In the backdrop of an era where conspiracy theories have evolved and taken on new forms, "The X-Files" remains an enigmatic reflection of our fears and uncertainties. Dr. Jones' insightful analysis unveils the layers of its impact on culture, society, and our perception of truth.

As we explore this timeless phenomenon, we invite you to embrace the mysteries, the questions, and the revelations that "The X-Files" offers. So, get ready for an intellectual odyssey that will challenge your perceptions and ignite your imagination. And when we return, we'll continue our fascinating conversation with Dr. Bethan Jones, guiding us through "The X-Files" like never before.

Stay tuned, because tonight, the truth is still out there.
